Stumble Upon Toolbar

The rainy weather has finally hit us here in California - which means that it's time for some soup! I love making soups for dinner, they're simple yet satisfying - this is a great one.

Potato and Corn Chowder

6 Cups peeled, diced Potatoes
1 Med. Onion, peeled & chopped
2 (14 1/2 oz) Cans Chicken Broth
3 Tbsp. Butter
3 Tbsp. Flour
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1 Cup Corn kernels
1/3 Cup Bacon Bits (the real, soft kind - not those fake, dried, crunchy kind)
1 tsp. Marjoram
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/3 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

--------------------------------------------------------

Bring potatoes, onions and broth to a boil in a large saucepan; simmer for 15 minutes.

Remove half of the potatoes and onions; set aside.

Place the remaining potatoes, onions and broth mixture into a blender or food processor (or use an immersion blender) and blend until smooth. (if using a food processor or blender, work in small batches to avoid overflow due to heat). Return to saucepan along with chunky potatoes and onions.

Melt butter in a separate saucepan. Stir in flour; cook and stir 1 minute. Add milk; cook and stir until smooth and thickened. Add to potato-broth mixture along with the corn, bacon and spices; simmer 5 minutes.

Stir in cheese and cook 1 minute longer.

- Serves 6-8 -

Oh yum! I think I might have to make that for dinner tonight! We need something warm and comforting today! LOL (voting could be very stressful!)

This recipe sounds great. I can't wait to get a shopping list together and make this!

My daughter and I don't really eat corn, but this recipe sounds good (potatoes, bacon, cheese how can you go wrong?) is there something else we could substitute for the corn? Would broccoli work? Bell pepper? What do you think?
